The Young Justice pilot aired over Thanksgiving, but the series begins running Fridays in January on the Cartoon Network. Here’s a trailer for the upcoming season:
In terms of addressing the gender imbalance, in this clip, Black Canary gets a mention and some screentime, but the team still appears to be focused on the boys. When Miss Martian appears, she’s treated in terms of her attractive appearance, not her abilities, which aren’t clear to me. She’s later shown exploding an airplane, or surviving it, I’m not sure which. There’s also a clip of the female archer, without her being introduced.
Since the tagline is “don’t call them sidekicks”, it makes sense, I guess, that they’re focusing more on the hero connections, with Robin and Flash and Superboy. I continue to hope that the advertising isn’t an accurate representation of how the girls on the team will be treated.
